    Description

    This handsome Tallmidge and Watson home is on one of River Forest's most beautiful blocks. A very deep front yard sets off the home on a gentle rise. The charming screened in porch is enclosed by floor to ceiling French doors. The extra wide front door has decorative leaded glass side lights. A gracious foyer opens to a formal living room to the right and a formal dining room to the left. Newly finished light walnut stained Oak floors throughout. The living room has three sets of floor to ceiling casement windows set into a VERY wide bay. Built-in arched shelves with lower cabinets flank the window to the enclosed front porch. A stately wood burning fireplace and mantle are on the opposite end of the living room with generous side light windows on either side. Wall sconces punctuate the room with Old World Charm. The dining room has two large windows on the west and north walls and also repeats the wall sconces found in the living room. The cherry cabinet kitchen has a marble mosaic back splash and art glass "Iris" themed windows. There is a breakfast room and a small built-in butler's pantry off of the kitchen. The 22' x 11' family room opens to a screened in bar area and steps out to a 22' x 23' deck that takes in the view of the huge landscaped yard with mature Oaks and charming pond. The second floor master bedroom has a west facing private 19' x 10' deck for enjoying the expansive view of sunsets. There are two other generous bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. A staircase leads to the third floor which also has a full bathroom. This space would make a wonderful office, playroom, guest space...The basement is another large finished open canvas space that could be used for any number purposes. The basement is the location of the second fireplace. The owner installed an $8,000 generator and sump/ejector system so a dry basement is no concern. Located within minutes of Dominican University, biking trails, Thatcher Woods, Whole Foods, Great local restaurants...
